I started out to build the Academy Magach 6B-Gal/Batash, and it quickly became a quest to use up all the M60 parts kits, AM and other bits I've been accumulating over the years. I'll post detailed pics when I get back home, but for now, here's a teaser:

I kind of threw my "one kit at a time" resolution out the window.

Dang, that kinda looks like a production line - Rock Island Arsenal or something like that!

You don't happen to know any interior kits for that, do you?

I'm kinda stuck with my CEV, remember?

Good luck with your build and have a nice day

Reminds me of my days in Germany when fellow lieutenants wanted me to build them a model of their tank. I'd have several Tamiya and Esci M60s going at once.

One at a time..... not anymore lol.

Those are Tamiya and Academy kits I assume? The AFV Club kit is loaded with details, but they went nuts with the casting texture as I'm sure you know. Just had a peek at a Takom kit a week ago and they nailed it. Let's hope they make some U.S. M-60's soon. :)

As always, I'll be lurking the heck out of your build logs. ;)

Looking forward to more work on these!

Got a couple M60s myself and maybe you'll motivate to get off my bum and finish them.
